Upper-year opportunities are available to those students who have completed at least one year of university. Course offerings are international in scope and interdisciplinary in nature.
The students in the upper-year program come from universities around the world – Japan, Korea, Turkey, Mexico, USA, China and elsewhere. Featuring classes that average ten students in size, upper year participants have the opportunity to carry out both primary and secondary research, and to work closely with faculty – an experience they might not receive even at the graduate level.
Wherever you are in the world, the Upper Year Program at the BISC is open to all students currently enrolled in an undergraduate degree program at an accredited university.
